The play, 'Off the Meter', is a comedic glimpse into 35 years behind the wheel of a New York City yellow taxi and is a pithy social commentary from New York’s most recognizable cab driver about life spent behind the wheel.
John McDonagh is a playwright, cab driver, comic and a veteran radio host. He has condensed thirty-plus years of activism, reality show antics and observation into a love song to the city that never sleeps.
From the plight of the NYC homeless to the crazy demands of Upper East Side matrons, McDonagh brings the audience from laughter to tears and back again faster than the apparition of umbrella dealers on a rainy day. Throw in his tales of brushes with the rich and famous and you have Irish storytelling at its best.
After the screening of the play, John McDonagh will lead a discussion.
